The managing partner, Perry Liss, said, “Personal injury lawsuits are filed by people or their representatives who have been injured due to the negligence of someone else. The injury may be either physical or emotional, and it can arise from a variety of sources or types of conduct. Some of the most common types of personal injury cases include slip and fall, automobile accidents, assaults and battery, medical malpractice, and product liability. The goal of a personal injury action is to determine who was responsible and to compel the responsible party to compensate the injured person for the losses sustained.” More information about the firm is available on their G+ Page.
Some of the items for which injured parties are legally entitled to compensation include lost wages, the past and future medical expenses, damages for both physical and emotional pain and suffering, and damages for disfigurement. Sometimes, a close family member of the injured person, such as his or her spouse, may also be entitled to damages. This award is often referred to as loss of consortium damages, which is intended to compensate the loved one for the loss of the injured or deceased person’s services and companionship. Other kinds of damages that may be awarded, depending on the laws of the state where the lawsuit is brought and the facts of the particular case. This includes hedonic damages, which are awarded to compensate the plaintiff for the loss of enjoyment of activities that he or she once valued but can no longer participate in as a result of the injuries suffered.
However, not every injured plaintiff is entitled to recover damages for the injury he or she sustains. Besides the injury, the plaintiff must also establish, through credible and relevant evidence, that the defendant is legally responsible for his or her injuries. The plaintiff must present proof of causation both in terms of actual causation and proximate (legal) causation. Literal cause and effect determine actual causation. Whether legal causation is established depends on the facts and circumstances of the particular matter in question. In some personal injury actions, legal causation may be established if the plaintiff can show that the defendant engaged in the intentional conduct.
